After an overwhelming number of requests for a blog post on What I Eat In A Day, it’s finally here!

Now I want you to remember that this is what “I” eat in a day, so it doesn’t mean that it is appropriate for everyone. This way of eating suits me and my lifestyle. I’m very healthy, energetic, have a strong immune system & rarely get sick, all my pathology & physiological test results (e.g. bone density etc) are very good, so I know that this way of eating is beneficial for me.


My Eating


Here are some important things about the way I eat:

  • My diet is based on natural, healthy, real foods – vegetables, fruits, wholegrains, nuts, seeds, legumes, fish & foods made from these. Some people call this a “plant-based diet” but I do consume fish regularly.
  • I eat intuitively, which means what I eat day to day can differ. I don’t count calories or macros. If I’m hungrier one day, I will eat more, and if I’m not as hungry on other days, I’ll eat less. I don’t have any “rules” when it comes to eating. What I eat is a choice & I listen to my body.
  • I eat seasonally, which means I try to eat foods that are currently in season. So what I eat in summer will be different to what I eat in winter.
  • I enjoy all the foods I eat and I don’t eat any foods I don’t like and there aren’t any foods I want to eat that I don’t.

This blog is based on what I’m currently eating at the moment and is a general overview of what I would eat in a typical day. I’ve included the most common options that I would have at each meal but these do change. For example, I’ve listed my 2 most common breakfasts, however I may also have a bowl of wholegrain cereal with fruit or baked beans with cooked veggies, however the two options I’ve outlined are the most common ones I go for across a week. Also, everything I’ve listed is homemade unless otherwise specified.

So without further ado, here is “What I Eat In A Day”.


Before My Morning Workout
Water + Coffee (homemade or out)

Breakfast (Post Workout)
Cooked veggies (e.g. baby spinach, tomato, broccolini, mushrooms & sweet potato) with salmon/ocean trout/tuna + piece of fruit – currently mango or banana
OR
Fruit Smoothie made with mango/banana, soy milk, seeds (e.g. chia, flax) + oats/muesli/wholegrain cereal

Water

Lunch + Dinner
Salad or cooked veggies (at least half a plate full) with a protein source:

  • fish
  • tofu
  • beans
  • lentils

And a carb source:

  • Sweet potato / brown rice / quinoa / wholegrain pasta / lentils etc

I’ll often make the above into a big salad with a yummy dressing (see recipes section of my blog) like poke, serve on a plate like baked veggies + piece of fish or stirfry it all up together.

Water

Snacks + Dessert*
Fresh fruit
Left-over baked veggies
Fresh cold-pressed juice
Tin of baked beans / tuna / salmon / tofu
Soy / Coconut Yoghurt
Nuts + seeds
My banana cake / nice-cream / bliss balls or any other snack recipes here on my website
If I’ve run out of home made snacks, I’ll have a healthy packaged one

*Note – Which snacks and how many I have depends now what I feel like during the day.
